Marvel Reintroduce Trading Cards For GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Relaunch

The '90s kids will remember the comic trading card era very well. In certain bagged issues we'd receive a character card, and they were completely awesome..although I'm not really sure why! Check out the GOTG range which will debut with the upcoming title relaunch..

This March, Guardians of the Galaxy #1 launches in style with special limited edition trading cards, ONLY available at select retail shops hosting a launch party! That’s right, one of the biggest launches of the year just got bigger with one of a kind collector’s items! Courtesy of blockbuster creators Brian Michael Bendis (All New X-Men, Age Of Ultron) and Steve McNiven (Civil War, Old Man Logan), fans are in for the ride of their life as the Guardians of the Galaxy put their lives on the line for the sake of the Marvel Universe. There’s a new rule in the galaxy, and it’s put Earth off limits to any outsiders. But why has Earth become so important? That’s what Star Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket Raccoon, Groot AND Iron Man are about to discover.

But that’s not all! ONE of these trading cards will not be as readily available as the others. But which one? Well you’ll have to head on over to a local participating retailer to find out!















Between this, the die cut covers from DC and the foil covers from Marvel, comics seem to have entered a time warp..not that I'm complaining. You can nab one of teh above trading cards when you pick up a copy of Guardians Of The Galaxy #1 from any launch parties held by participating retailers.

seems like marvel are using Ironman like DC is using Batman " just throw him in there, so it can sell!"

Where's Drax, is he not a part of the NOW! team?
LordoftheThrones26 - 2/12/2013, 10:40 AM
WHERE IS STAR-LORD'S SAEXY MASK?? HE'S NOT STAR-LORD WITHOUT THAT SEXY MASK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ruadh - 2/12/2013, 10:42 AM
I imagine they enjoy making profits...
KeefNCookies - 2/12/2013, 10:43 AM
@BlueMex
Agreed.

Stupid freaking designs. I could not possibly care less about this newest volume. Hate Bendis taking over GOTG. This has nothing on DnA's steez.
LordoftheThrones26 - 2/12/2013, 10:43 AM
REPLACE IRON MAN WITH CAPTAIN MARVEL!!! RESSURECT CAPTAIN MARVEL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"Where's Drax, is he not a part of the NOW! team?"

Is he not the one labeled "Drax"?
niceguyeddie - 2/12/2013, 10:43 AM
They should bring back the Marvel Materpiece cards. I still have my old ones.
KeefNCookies - 2/12/2013, 10:48 AM
@LordoftheThrones
Minus the sexy part, him not having his mask is one of the bigger frustrations. Wouldnt like the costumes with it, but without it is simply unacceptable in every which way. For every step forward made... *sigh*
MrYurMomm - 2/12/2013, 10:48 AM
I still can't believe Chris Pratt is Star-Lord, its gonna be weird not seeing him as Andy from Parks and Recreation. I hope he's versatile in his acting skills
ComicFan1134 - 2/12/2013, 10:49 AM
I Miss The Marvel Card Series, I Remember Collecting Them,OH And Iron Man In The GOTG Comic-Bully To That!
LordoftheThrones26 - 2/12/2013, 10:54 AM
@KeefNCookies
Ahh come on that mask is totally sexy hehehehehe! LOL
Yeah it's not Star-Lord without the mask maybe he'll somehow get it in latter issues I hope!
thatcoldblackcloud - 2/12/2013, 10:55 AM
Wow. Shittiest team ever...and theyre making a live action outta this? LoL
JerBear - 2/12/2013, 10:59 AM
MAAAAAAAAAASK. GIVE HIM THE DAMN MASK.
KaneVonDoom - 2/12/2013, 11:07 AM
NovaCorpsfan: Did you not see that huge Drax card?... You know, the one with Drax on it.
superotherside - 2/12/2013, 11:08 AM
If Star Lord doesn't get a mask soon, I'm going to be super mad.
jimoakley666 - 2/12/2013, 11:13 AM
I loved the '94 Fleer series. They were the dog's bollocks. Brilliant series. Oh, hold one, I've still got them in a box under my desk.
Spideyguy94 - 2/12/2013, 11:15 AM
Can't wait for this. Bendis has been knocking it out of the park on all of his books this past year.
luckylu - 2/12/2013, 11:20 AM
damnit marvel, put the mask back on star lord.
SimonPhoenix - 2/12/2013, 11:22 AM
Fully agree Batz... i think its a genius move in the long run including Iron Man. So many of you claim you're sick or Iron Man, but I call bullshit. RDJ oozes Stark and I simply can't get enough.
DefcoN - 2/12/2013, 11:33 AM
I have to be honest. I'm still trying to get used to these GotG new looks. Man, even Star Lord gives me the feeling i'm looking at Adam Warlock with a haircut instead of Peter Quill.
PC04 - 2/12/2013, 11:33 AM
Can they not make the GOTG look like they belong in a Mass Effect game?
mawilli4 - 2/12/2013, 11:46 AM
THAT'S NOT STAR-LORD. Give him the Mask or the original costumer with the weather gun!
TheBeard - 2/12/2013, 11:49 AM
They went full retard with that Gamora design.
RyGoR - 2/12/2013, 11:56 AM
I hope they make it a point to have someone call out star lord for no mask I'm looking at drax or rocket saying it lol
RyGoR - 2/12/2013, 12:00 PM
I have high hopes for this series bendis can do wonders I just need star lord's mask though I feel weird without it...........hahaha
thatiscrazy - 2/12/2013, 12:01 PM
Okay, I get the space suits... but I hope they make them closer to their comic book counter parts in terms of theme. That image of Starlord aint Starlord, and I really hope they don't go this route. I like the space pirate look. And Groot with lights... eh.
thatiscrazy - 2/12/2013, 12:03 PM
now that I think about it... Starlords gear translates well to real life. They don't need to change it at all.
TheDudeRises - 2/12/2013, 12:22 PM
Jason Momoa for Drax!!!!! That is all.
comicstocode - 2/12/2013, 12:39 PM
this is irreverent.
DrDoom - 2/12/2013, 1:10 PM
STAR LORD NEEDS A MASK.

LIKE, [frick]. HE BETTER HAVE IT IN THE [frick]ING MOVIE
CaptainObvious - 2/12/2013, 1:44 PM
"We hope you enjoy Iron Man and the Guardians of the Galaxy starring Iron Man."

Why does every character have chest arcs on their bodies?
Ghostt - 2/12/2013, 2:01 PM
Not impressed, Marvel!!

When did Steve Rogers become Star Lord? And iron Man has no business GotG.
OriginalGuardiansPlease - 2/12/2013, 2:19 PM
re-introduces? Huh? Believe it or not they still produce trading cards.

These are the not the same thing as the cards that were packaged in some comics back in the 90s...i think what he's refering to was the Annuals and that year they were introducing a new character for each annual. For the guardians of the galaxy that was a boring character named the Irish Wolfhound.

Where the hell is Starhawk and Vance is all i have to say.
ThePowerCosmic - 2/12/2013, 3:33 PM
The Iron Man Card looks Terrible...
masterhater - 2/12/2013, 4:59 PM
Star Lord better have his mask in the movie!!!!
UltimateTypeface - 2/12/2013, 5:00 PM
Why cant gamora have her hot green and gold outfit?

Why cant starlord have a mask?

why does Groot have drop lights all over him?

why do men have nipples?

Why do i get more thirty the more beer I drink?
mgeoff88 - 2/12/2013, 10:16 PM
My sister collected Marvel trading cards, and I even contributed to the collection.

I recently rescued them from her closet, which also has TMNT action figures, but those are hers.

I think I'm Willing to start an online petition Jason Momoa for Drax
